The Insurance Act

What is the Insurance Act 2015?

The Insurance Act 2015 is new legislation that came into effect on 12 August 2016. It makes some important changes to your relationship with your insurer, including rules regarding when your insurer is allowed to reject a claim. It’s designed to make insurance clearer and fairer.

The Act itself is pretty technical, so we’ve explained three of the key elements here in plain English. For full details and the legal wording please refer to your policy wording, which forms part of the terms and conditions of your insurance policy.
